Our take on the JBL JBL-MPK175 Marine Package

by Jon Paulette

Big JBL sound in a compact package

With an upgraded sound system, your next boating adventure will be even better. This JBL audio package is a great way to boost the sound on your boat without emptying your wallet. This combo includes a marine digital media receiver and a pair of rugged 6-1/2" marine speakers.

JBL PRV175 digital media receiver

Fits in a standard tach opening

Go digital with your boat's audio system

JBL's PRV175 marine digital media receiver packs a lot of features into a compact design that fits into a standard tachometer opening. Listen to AM/FM radio broadcasts, or take advantage of the built-in Bluetooth to stream music from smartphones or other compatible devices. The LED display lets you see what you're listening to with just a glance, while the watertight, UV-stable face and controls stand up to sun, salt and moisture.

You can also plug a smartphone or thumb drive into the rear USB port and enjoy your digital music library, or use the rear RCA auxiliary inputs for iPhones, iPods, or just about any other digital music player. The rear-mounted preamp RCA outputs make it a little easier to expand your system with a marine amp in the future.

Powerful speakers made for marine use

With rubber surrounds, a corrosion-resistant polymer basket and a UV-resistant ABS grille, JBL's MS6200 6-1/2" 2-way speakers will stand up to salt, spray, and sun. The grille-mounted tweeter and sealed magnet helps protect the internal works from damage, so you can turn the hose up to full blast when you're giving the boat a good washdown after a cruise. And, of course, they sound great, too.

This marine digital media receiver will not play CDs.
